Apple and Foxconn Leaving China?

Employees of Foxconn Rally for Severance Package

Employees of Foxconn rallied within the factory compound of Guanlan factory of Foxconn in Shenzhen on June 9th 2023. They were advocating for the "N+1" severance package after Foxconn had announced a 5-day vacation commencing from the Dragon Boat Festival on June 22nd coupling it with reduction in regular working hours. The "N+1" compensation package is a standard severance package plus 1 month of pay meant to cover the lack of notice period.

Foxconn Reducing Manufacturing in China

The Shenzhen factory compound of Foxconn once employed more than 150,000 employees. Now only 30,000 employees remain and that number is also going down. It's common knowledge now that Apple has changed its supply chain to be less dependant of China. Apple and Foxconn as Apple's main manufacturing partner has been moving manufacturing to India and south-east Asia. Reducing of working hours in Guanlan factory is just the latest event in this scheme.

Problems to Economy

These reductions have already affected the local housing markets around the factories. Additionally the lot's of small businesses have either closed or moved elsewhere. Once bustling shopping malls in the district have become deserted and many malls have just boarded up the vacant storefronts.

Factory to Saudi Arabia?

Foxconn is in talks with Saudi Arabia to build a $9 billion factory in Neom. Neom is a tech-focused city-state Saudi Arabia is developing in the desert. The new factory could be manufacturing microchips, electric-vehicle components and other electronics. Foxconn is also in talks with the United Arab Emirates about possibly placing the new factory there.
